Position 1. Now you are lined up, complete your POM routine, remember to put the car into reverse. It will also help you to lower the nearside door mirror. Yes, you can do this on test!
As you slowly reverse, look over your left shoulder through the back window and the nearside rear window.
The nearside rear window will give you a view of the object car. When your car is level at the rear with the object car or has just passed, it is time to steer. You can stop at this point if you like. Whilst the car is moving steer 1 full turn left. (not full lock). You need to check over your right shoulder to check it is safe as the front end of your car moves to the right.
Position 2. As your car continues to reverse slowly you will notice the car coming to a 45 degrees angle (almost 2 o'clock). Again, you can stop at this point if you like. Now it is time to steer 1 full turn right. My training vehicle has rear cameras that help with the 45 degree point.
Your car will now reverse slowly to the kerb in a straight line at your 45 degree angle. Glance between your back window and your nearside door mirror. You need to know if there are any vehicles around.
Position 3. Your left door mirror is key now, some drivers know when they need to steer 1 full turn right to avoid hitting the kerb just by looking at the door mirror. Some drivers need a reference point. The reference point in this case is the door handle lining up with the kerb as shown in the image. When you reach this point - stop. Then add 1 full turn to the right. Keep crawling, keep an eye on the kerb - left shoulder plus door mirror checks. If you need more steering to avoid the kerb steer to the right some more.
The car will straighten. Come to a stop. Secure the Car, raise your door mirror. Very important, raise your door mirror.
